I run my own Art Therapy and Counselling Practice in North Avoca, focusing mainly on children, however I do also see teens and adults. I have great success with a broad area of issues, such as anxiety, depression, divorce, bullying, grief, life changes, and many others. I use a range of modalities, including Journey Therapy, emotional release work and cellular healing, Art Therapy and creative processes, as well as practical tools to take into every day life. I am passionate about helping children release what is weighing them down, so they can enjoy their childhood, and grow up to be the best they can be.

I had the boys 2-3 full days a week, we did lots of fun activities, arts crafts, sport, went to the beach, I also helped with cooking, homework, baths, teaching them to read and write, school runs, school lunches, etc, and anything else that was needed.
Since living up here I have worked for a family with lovely two girls, 8 and 9, in Empire Bay.
I've also worked for a great family in Wamberal, with three children, 6, 10, and 12.
These were both for after school care, picking them up from school, driving to and from after school activities, homework, baths and dinners. As well as hanging out, having fun, doing arts and crafts and games, and caring for them in the school holidays.
